In connected information, it appears we have confirmation that Tim Frazier missing the musical chairs struggle for Milwaukee’s roster location. That also suggests that, for now, Christian Wood and D.J. Wilson surface to be harmless in people final spots. On the other hand, the impending shift with Washington suggests that a single of them could be a participant who is on the way out. No word but on if Milwaukee is sending a thing again to Washington, we’ll update the tale if additional facts comes in.
Just needed to supply a single piece of clarification right here. Though we continue to don’t know the precise specifics on the next spherical pick’s protections (cross your fingers it’s not the dreaded major-55 shielded kind), it does surface the Bucks made use of the trade exception produced by Greg Monroe to full the trade. Kudos to Twitter’s cap professionals for parceling people specifics out.
To get in Jodie Meeks, the Bucks made use of their $3.5M trade exception (which was expiring on 11/7 anyway). They get a next-spherical decide (and probably some money, if what they are getting paid out is additional than his $3.5M wage).
